Recently, the legal team at Huesman, Jones & Miles, LLC litigated a for a local family in the Circuit Court of Carroll County, Case # 06-C-15-068538, winning them compensation.
According to court documents, the family hired a private contractor to build an addition to their home in 2012, which required the removal of part of their old roof and the installation of a new replacement roof. According to the record, at the end of each day, the contractor would secure a tarp over the unfinished roof in order to cover it. The family testified that the contractor failed to secure the tarp well enough and it blew off twice within the span of two weeks during violent thunderstorms. According to records provided in court, these storms caused extensive amounts of water to flood the inside of the house, dousing the walls, ceilings, floors and most of the furniture in the home. According to the family's testimony, the damage was so severe that they (including children and pets) had to move out of their home for months. Furthermore, the family testified that the damage in the home was not remediated properly by the contractor and the moisture caused mold to grow behind the walls. The family decided to file a lawsuit against the contractor with another Carroll County law firm. After a year of waiting, their lawyers decided to let go of the case four months before the trial started. The family was forced to search last minute for legal advice, finally finding Huesman, Jones & Miles, LLC. Together with the aid of another local attorney, Irwin Weiss, Huesman, Jones & Miles litigated on the family’s behalf.
When the case came to court, records sate that the contractor brought on their own legal team from their insurance company as well as experts in the field. However, the plaintiff's attorneys, along with Irwin Weiss, were able to bring in five different experts to testify, including a contractor, a public adjuster, a roof engineer, a mold expert, and a mold remediation contractor.
